Devil's Alternative
by Dr. Jaipal Singh
Bookmark and Share
  What we usually believe
An optimist person
Lives a happy and healthy life...

A recent study suggests
Pessimists are likely to live
A longer and healthier life
For they are more down-to-earth
Compared to an optimist
In their real life.

So it seems to be a devil's alternative
To live a long and miserable life
For God is believed to favour
A rather short and happy life.


(This is based on a recent news item in 'Times of India', a popular national daily)
